“Artisan Beer is a timely book. As the craft beer renaissance has broken out of the underground and into the hearts and palates of a growing army of beer enthusiasts, Gary Monterosso is the right soldier to lead this charge. His writing is informative and approachable and he knows his subject well, from beer-and-food pairings to beer-style demystification. Gary’s leadership in the field helps even the recently-enlisted earn their stripes.” (Sam Calagione, President & Founder, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery )
“Having slogged his way from teaching to beer tasting, Gary Monterosso is a man who understands that while drinking beer is easy, understanding and appreciating beer is something else altogether. Here he wants to share with you how he made that transition, and how you can, too, with beer style synopses, beer and food pairing tips and a case of beer that is nothing if not memorable!” (Stephen Beaumont, co-author of The World Atlas of Beer )
“Gary Monterosso brings his expertise and love of beer to his new book, Artisan Beer. If you love drinking craft beers, this book is the one for you, whether you are an expert or a novice to the beverage. A sure winner!” (Beer Connoisseur Magazine
